Relying on Employer-Favorable Case Law Outcomes to Help Defend Against Employment Class and Collective Actions


This chapter has a three-fold purpose. First, it discusses the differences between Rule 23 employment class actions and “collective” actions under the federal wage and hour and equal pay protection laws. Second, this chapter analyzes recent US Supreme Court and other decisions applying the different Rule 23 class action and collective action requirements. Finally, this chapter analyzes and offers practical approaches to defend against class action and collective action lawsuits in light of recent employer-favorable case law outcomes.
